I first began tutoring my senior year in college as part of TA-ing for three different classes and continued tutoring after college for two years before beginning graduate school.

Hello!

My name is Greg, and I am in my final (5th) year in the neuroscience PhD program at UVM. I first began tutoring my senior year in college as part of TA-ing for three different classes and continued tutoring after college for two years before beginning graduate school. In graduate school, I teach lab sections for introductory neuroscience classes, lead discussion sections, and mentor undergraduates in their independent research. Along the way I have tutored in high school math and biology since 2012. Through the years of research, tutoring, and mentoring, the personal relationships I have formed have been the most rewarding parts of my job.

My goal as a tutor is to have my students have a complete and generalizable knowledge of the material we cover. Thus, if we are working on algebra then I would expect my student's knowledge to be able to be applied to physics or chemistry easily, and with confidence, rather than only feeling comfortable with work they have already seen. This takes the form of unseen practice problems in each session that build upon past material but are within completely novel contexts that should challenge the student and give real feedback as to the actual skills they have gained while working with me. This is in opposition to direct memorization of a process. Flexibility is key to being able to succeed in high level examinations!

I would love to help you reach your goals in math and science so please contact me if I can be of service!

I have helped multiple students over 4+ years of tutoring. Algebra 2 always seems to be where the memorizing students are outpaced by the conceptualizing students, the process of teaching a student to be more conceptual is particularly challenging, but enjoyable.

Intelligent yet relaxed approach

Greg is a wonderful teacher. He takes on challenging science with tangible and easy to understand examples. My girls think he is a very good teacher and he always keeps them laughing while teaching.

Kate, 6 lessons with Greg

Smart/Organized and Personable

Greg helped my 9th grade son with Geometry. In just one session he was able to build his confidence and turn on a lightbulb in his thought process about solving problems. We feel so fortunate to have connected with him. A perfect fit for my son. Looking forward to regular sessions with Greg!!

Beth, 25 lessons with Greg

Prepared and patient

Greg came prepared with problems and exercises to get our rising senior ready for the SAT. She came away confident and was very pleased with his teaching style.

Very knowledgeable. Good at connecting with my child.

Greg started with a broad range of appropriate pre-algebra activities to assess my daughters skills. He was engaging and attentive.

Per, 9 lessons with Greg

Knowledgable and patient tutor.

Greg assisted my son with Geometry and Biology support! After just four sessions my son has increased his grade in Honors Biology and Greg is committed to helping him improve his grade in Geometry! He has helped him build his confidence and knowledge base in these courses!
